Van Persie vacationing in Barbados

BRIDGETOWN

Striker Robin Van Persie has flown to Barbados on holiday after helping Holland to third place in the just ended FIFA World Cup in Brazil. Van Persie is on a three-week break afforded to him by new Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal following his exploits at the world’s biggest football tournament.
The 30-year-striker was pictured relaxing with his wife and children at a beach in Barbados on Tuesday, just two days after the squad flew back to Holland. Van Persie scored four goals as Holland were eliminated at the semi-final stage before beating hosts Brazil in the third-place play-off.
